Pool Operation Management (POM) has assembled these pool tips to help both commercial and residential pool owners with routine swimming pool maintenance procedures. These are generic swimming pool procedures to help get your pools up and running for swimming season and how to winterize your pools when the season ends. These pool opening and winterizing procedures are to be used as a guide to help you customize the procedure for your own pool because not all pools require the same procedures.

Our pool tips also include an informative water testing procedure. Still, it is important for you to follow the directions on the water testing kit carefully. We have included helpful tips for you to consider when you are testing your pool water to help you get an accurate reading.

Other pool tips include pool emergency procedures for one or more lifeguards. We also have included requirements and a job description for a lifeguard, a field manager/head lifeguard job description and a swimming instructor job description.
